Psychology:

Read the following link (you can listen to the full interview if you want) about neuroscience and teenage brain.  Consider the following…

  1. This probably confirms lots of advice you’ve already heard (“Don’t do drugs!”). What are the scientific explanations for the conventional wisdom that you already knew?
  2. Based on this information about the teenage brain, what do you think are other implications for teenagers (you) that weren’t mentioned?
  3. Does this relate to any of our other readings? What are your general reflections?
